M = G x L(1-A)(1-R)

Pm = P – P x M 1/(1/-p)

All factors are between 0 and 1.

M equals the force of your magic. Which is dependent upon your G (Gnosis) and L (magical Link) multiplied by two negative factors. (Things working against you). Your conscious awareness of the desired result (1-A) and your subconscious resistance to doing magic (1-R) -i.e. “Mommy told me magick doesn’t work.”

In the other formula, P equals the chance the event you desire occurs by itself; (1/(1/-p)) equals the chance that the result you desire will not occur. Pm equals the combination of the Probability that the event will occur combined with your magical effort to make it occur

To make it slightly easier to read:

(M)agick = (G)nosis x (L)ink x -(Active Desire) x -(Disbelief)

Where Magick is the sum, Gnosis and a Magical Link are positive numbers, which are multiplied against Active Desire and Disbelief, which are negative numbers.

While Peter simplified the system by attributing each place holder with a value of 0 to 1, I think that is too simple, and would suggest a substitution of 1 to 5.

Also, I think he fails to take into account multiple people involved and ritual/practice over time.

I look forward to your feedback.
